... fast" was what he said. So I wonder if they shoots will come back with more girth the following years. So any thoughts on what is at least 7b-8a hardy, most likely a runner, matures 1"+ thick, and looks like this? - I'll try to get better pictures when I actually get it.

Try fargesia robusta campbell. It grows about 4.5-5m in zone 7b/8a, it should be at least 3.5m tall in zone 6. Cool thing about this fargesia is that it has second shooting period during summer. Canes are smaller than those in spring, but still.... And ...

I want a bamboo that will create a thick, tall screen, but also be useful as timber and possibly for eating new shoots. I don't ...

For plants I provide my customers, I'll tend to be pessimistic about what zone we are in; better to provide a zone 6 plant that lives than a more ...

... in the U.S. and the climate maps have been recently updated to reflect this. Sometimes resulting in a supposed increase of 2 (half zones-ex 6b - 7b) for some areas. The second issue is that there are multiple zone maps going around. The main two being the USDA map and the Arbor Day map. The third ...

The Zone is 6 where I am but as cold a zone 6 as is possible; the southern tip of NS is 6b, 7a and 7b with even cooler summers and foggier by a long shot. Soil is poor, rocky and mineral. All in all colder in winter than high mountainous China, the ...

7a should be pretty easy for s3 to handle since it gets no damage in 7b. I think 2016 should already have shoots over 1 inch. My largest S3 went from two 2ft tall culms with the main 1.6 inch diameter field division in 2013 up to 4 culms in the 5-8ft range ...
